it’s cider week in new york.
born from glynwood‘s larger apple project, cider week means a whole slew of events, tastings, and programs to celebrate the hard ciders brewed in new york’s hudson valley. the idea behind the project is pretty simple: “saving orchards with cider.”
i’m not sure we’ll make it to the events happening around the city this week, so james and i are celebrating with a few bottles of doc’s draft, brewed by warwick valley winery and distillery in warwick, new york. we’ve been enjoying their original hard apple cider, but i couldn’t help but to tuck a bottle of their pear and black currant ciders into my shopping basket, too. so far, so delicious.
what about you? any cider fans out there?

    I love apples. I love them in every form from cider to pies to just plain and crispy. I didn't even KNOW about this whole cider week thing until now, so thank you! I am SO SO happy you posted this. I live across the CT border from Westchester County, but have been searching hi and low to find an apple farm with cider and/or cider donuts, to no avail (well, the closest was about an hour away). After reading this, tomorrow I'm going to check out the Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard. Thank you so much!

    I'm definitely a cider fan! I went to the Thatchers cider brewery in Somerset, UK, last year – cut out the middleman (the supermarket!) and bought a barrel straight from there! Super!

    CT is a great place for cider and cider doughnuts–just to name a few of the best places, try Silverman's Farm in Easton, Blue Jay Orchards in Bethel, Avon Cider Mill in Avon, which makes melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts and nearly 40,000 gallons o' cider from a 1919 mill–and Beardsley's Cider Mill in Shelton, which has been pressing since 1849 and has 30 kinds of heirloom and other apples on its trees, and B. F. Clyde's in Old Mystic, a National Historic landmark with an 1881 steam-powered mill–the only left in the US!!
